On Saturday, the UC Davis West Village held its grand opening ceremony.
The West Village community is the largest net-zero energy community in
the United States. The community will house approximately 6,000 people,
including UC Davis faculty and students. The Sacramento City College’s
UC Davis Center and the new university research center uHub will also be
housed at West Village.
“UC Davis West Village illustrates our
commitment to cutting-edge research in sustainability and the value and
impact of public-private partnerships,” said UC Davis Chancellor Linda
P.B. Katehi in a statement. “The success of these partnerships
demonstrates what can be achieved when innovations in design, science
and engineering come together for the public good.”
The event on Saturday included a ribbon cutting ceremony, an open house and speeches by university representatives.
